Pedagogical practice has risen from a nebulous blend of rituals, traditions and beliefs built over time. The affordances of recent digital technologies have conflicted with those practices as 21st century tools are used with 20th century teaching methods. This problem is amplified with mobile technologies that push beyond the boundaries of traditional pedagogies. This requires educators to shed old beliefs and ideas to make way for a new contextualized, ubiquitous mobile learning landscape. The speaker presents a framework for how educators integrate mobile devices for learning and an ecological theory of mobile learning integration.
